Repurchase: Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie – Mangothon…

Some of you would remember me writing about the Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie in Goodness Grapecious last year (read my previous view here) which I really liked other than the opaque click tube. Well, it lasted me a good 6 months before abruptly coming to an end (you’ll know once it’s done as you’ll have problem clicking it any further).

Since I loved Goodness Grapecious, I hopped down to the local Clinique counter just to try another variant, and came away with the Mangothon which is more of a peach shade.

Comparison of the two hues – apologies for the tiny smear of the Goodness Grapecious shade. Like I said, the end of the tube came to an abrupt end. :D

In hindsight, I think Goodness Grapecious suits me better, plus the grape smell is amazing. Don’t get me wrong, Mangothon has a light mango-ish scent and a hint of flavor which is great. It’s just a matter of preference, but at the end of the day I use it primarily for the luscious pout it gives me…*smacks lips*

paris_b: heehee...why not? :D

askmewhats: I kinda liked the Grape-y colour more than the Mangothon, but can't beat the moisture factor..*smacks lips*

connie: heehee...I've got my eye on the Silkygirl glosses now...damn yoo!! :D

xin: the click-pen's quite nice for me, but I wish the tube was transparent so I won't suddenly run out of lipgloss!

actually, me got blackheads one, but *shh*...sometimes I use the pore pack on my chin! (just cut a small piece and stick on)

gio: thanks gio! :)

did anyone's brush tip smell weird after awhile? It's a very off-outting, rancid-like smell. Is it supposed to happen and does anyone know how to get rid of it?

shen: thanks shen! :)

FA: hi FA, I haven't had that problem with any of the Lip Smoothies I've used so far...maybe rinsing off the tip of the brush might help? I usually clean off the tip of the brush after using it though.
